    I use NextKast, mainly because I wrote it. more info at www.nextkast.com. I tried many of the other software out there a couple of years ago and decided that I could create something better for my particular application and use.

    I think it would be great if everyone posting here lets us know what station you are running with your software. I have been running www.saDanceRadio.com with nextkast for about 2 years now, we have over 400,000 tune ins a month and play mainly dance music.

    The reason I think naming the station is that there are over 50,000 stations out there, and I believe the quality of broadcast definetly effects audience size over time. I think it is important to use the right software for your station in order to get the best chance of a sucessful station.

    I have been using ZaraRadio for over 5 years now with no problems. It is very easy to setup and use. The scheduling events is great and theres not much you cant do with it. You can even get ZaraRadio to run .bat files to run other programs on your pc. It dosnt use SQL which I see as a plus. No problems doing live shows with it and it comes with an extra 4 players which you can assign to separate sound cards and also has preview in the main playlist and other music files on the pc. It may not be the best to look at, but that dosnt take any thing away from from using it and at the free price what more can you say.

    I've used Zara a few times.. I do like that it doesn't need an external database to store files, etc.

    That is almost exactly the same reason I created LunarCaster DJ. Add to that, we had many folks wanting to try their hand at being a DJ but, they didn't want to spend a small fortune just to maybe find out that they didn't really care for it after all. Hard to believe that it's been 5 years already since I started on it. o.O

    Server side we use sc_trans for full-time automation to our Shoutcast server. LCDJ is used mostly for remote DJ's to connect to the server (via sc_trans) and do their shows (which is what it was originally written for anyway). I find this method more reliable than trying to run automation software from my home PC to our remote server as the radio does not have to rely upon my internet connection to continue playing.

    The radio station LCDJ was originally built for: www.bluemoon-radio.de

    zararadio for me also....spent a year looking at different systems, one of the requirements was that it was stable on older systems, which it is. Running on XP pro a 3.0 ghz machine with 1 gig of ram. I don't need all the bells and whistles that eat up RAM...I process with a hardware compressor/limiter looping through an analog console so I can go live with carts and vinyl if I want. It also easy to program, and I really don't want to spend time learning a new computer language. The price makes my wife happy. You can't beat that. I wish it had a better option for music rotation and scheduling, but you weigh the pros and cons. besides, I really don't have time to schedule music. I want it to be totally automated.

    Running my own piece of software here to automate my (personal) radio station. Supports encoding to Shoutcast/Icecast servers with MP3, MP2, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis and Opus. Automatic playlists, winamp DSP and stuff like that.

    Works nicely together with my audio processing program for the FM transmitter.

    I use SAM Broadcaster, and I love it most of the time.. But it is unstable and freezes way to often. I'm always on the lookout for some new and better software but so far I haven't found anything with the same funcionality when it comes to both automation and live broadcasting.

    Try RadioDJ it has pretty much the flexibility of SAM only it doesn't crash or freeze as often http://radiodj.ro/download Works perfectly for doing live shows with.
